Cape Town - Orlando Pirates have called up 17-year-old goalkeeper Tsebo Tsotetsi from their youth academy to train with the first team.
According to Goal.com website, the young shot-stopper will be training with Brazilian goalkeeper coach Alexandre Revoredo.
It is reported that Tsotetsi has been touted to be the long-term replacement for the late Senzo Meyiwa.
Revoredo will assess Tsotetsi’s progress during training sessions and will give Vladimir Vermezovic the final word on whether to promote the goalkeeper or not.
The Buccaneers only have Philani Zikalala and Brighton 'Spider Man' Mhlongo in their ranks after Ntando Nkala joined NFD side, Witbank Spurs.
The Soweto side suffered a 2-0 defeat to SuperSport United in the Telkom Knockout in their first match without their late goalkeeper and captain Senzo Meyiwa.
Orlando Pirates have the opportunity for revenge when they face SuperSport United when the Absa Premiership resumes on Sunday, November 23 at 15:30.
The match at the Peter Mokaba Stadium will provide the ideal opportunity for the wounded Buccaneers to bounce back.
